- Support migrant laborers: As Corona hit India and as the 1st #juntaCurfew was announced, most of us were worried and confused. But no one predicted the biggest challenge we have faced since - the plight of migrant labourers, their exodus from employment hubs, the lack of transport, food, and shelter, and how they have been turned off from one checkpoint to another. The situation demands basic and fast relief in the remote villages, deserted highways, and border checkpoints. Read how iVolunteer together with our India Fellow network is working to provide direct cash relief to migrant families. This is the rarest of rare times when iVolunteer seeks more than your time - donate now.
